Ferry deaths: Robot deployed in search for victims

Divers have retrieved more bodies from the South Korean ferry that sank last Wednesday - but at least 200 people are still missing.

Families have agreed that the hull of the ship should be lifted from the seabed in the coming days, if divers are unable to recover all of the victims.

A remote robot has been deployed, which will assist in bringing the hull to the surface.

Jonathan Head reports from Jindo.
